Migrating from old LetsEncrypt to certbot-auto on Ubuntu 14.04

    I have an existing server which I once set up to use LetsEncrypt with ISPConfig 3.
    The client from back then is from 2016 and its demanding an update as it will stop working in 2 months.
    I've installed certbot-auto by hand since there are no packages for Ubuntu 14.04 and it seems functional.
    How do I get ISPConfig to start using certbot-auto instead of the old installation?
    I've ran "certbot-auto -n renew" which throws a lot of these: "Could not choose appropriate plugin for updaters: Could not select or initialize the requested installer none."
    The original crontab is pointing to the old installation:
    30 02 * * * /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt renew >> /var/log/ispconfig/cron.log;
    So should that just be replaced with the certbot-auto command? Do I need a plugin?

    No, the command is still certbot, certbot-auto is an installer for certbot and not a replacement. Install a recent certbot version like this:

    cd /usr/local/bin
    wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto
    chmod a+x certbot-auto
    ./certbot-auto --install-only
